  • The effects of ovariectomy, estradiol-17beta, and progesterone on female sexuality were investigated in a prosimian primate, the lesser bushbaby (Galago moholi). Each of eight ovariectomized, adult bushbabies was pair-tested with a male partner in the absence of hormone treatment, during estradiol-17beta (E2) treatment (3.125 microg/0.1 ml), and during E2 + progesterone (0.125 mg/0.1 ml) treatment. Pretreatment females were sexually nonreceptive and nonattractive toward the males. In contrast… CONTINUE READING
